    Gravity dropped to 1.025. This isn't good, so what now guys?Why do you say it's not good? Not
    low enough? Give it some more time to see if it drops more. That was a really big beer, it may
    need more t...

    Just by your ingredients, you should have hit around 1.077 for an OG, so it sounds like you

    long has it...

    I was trying to avoid the pumpkin flavor for this brew, I have another regular pumpkin ale I
    like pretty good. Talking to my LHBS just to bounce ideas, I think I am either going with a
    vanilla pecan o...

    I'm not a big fan of wheat beers, but I don't mind Belgian whites, not as much banana clove to
    me. Anyway, I have a group of people interested in a wheat beer from me and coming up on fall
    wanted to i...
